Redeeming Asiana Miles
Hi! I have about 68K Asiana miles in my account, which have been accumulated on past SFO-DEL trips. I just realized that Asiana has stopped service to DEL because of their financial woes. So, flying with Asiana is not an option any more. Question- what airline is my best option to redeem these miles for a future SFO-DEL ticket Or what is the best use of these miles at this point? Can I transfer these into some other rewards program?Thanks!
Asiana is part of Star Alliance so you can use those miles for flights on airlines like Singapore and United. You’ll still use the Asiana award chart and book your ticket through them but just on another airline. Use this award chart to determine how many miles it will take: [URL]https://flyasiana.com/C/US/EN/contents/star-alliance-mileage-tickets[/URL]
Note that the partner must make available awards at the saver level for you to be able to book them with Asiana miles.
Other than BA/Iberia/Aer Lingus using different forms of Avios and allowing transfers among them, I’m not aware of any other airlines that allow transferring their frequent flyer miles to another airline.
